Our 2021-22 School Motto:
July 1, 2021
Dear Jr/Sr HS Families,
While the 2020-21 school-year was challenging, we finished strong to complete the year. Students, teachers, families, and community members were resilient and supportive of one another. I am so proud of our students and staff members for all of their hard work and well-earned successes, and on behalf of all of us at SC Jr/Sr High School, I would like to thank everyone for their patience, enthusiasm, and support. Together, we have been able to ensure that students had the opportunity for in-person learning, competitive sports, club activities, and recognition ceremonies. Together we were stronger and made the most out of the year! In the 2021-22 school year, we will move forward with our plan to offer in-person daily instruction only to all our students.
Overall, students were tremendously successful in their courses and on their final exams during the 2020-21 school year. This year we calculated overall final grades in the following fashion: Courses that ended in a final exam: marking period 1-6 average as 90% and final exam as 10%. If there was no final exam given, then marking period 1-6 average will account as the student’s final grade. If a student was not successful in a course (overall grade lower than 65) we are recommending summer school for students.
Below, I listed a few important upcoming activities/dates:
- Summer School: July 6 - July 29 (no Fridays)
- Fall Sports Registration: Now - August 13 (questions, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- JV/Varsity Fall Sports Begin: August 23
- Modified Fall Sports Begin: September 7
- 2021-22 School Visitation Day: Wed, September 1 (2:00-4:00pm)
- First Day of School 2021-22: September 7
Finally, I would like to congratulate our newest alumni, the graduates of the SCCS Class of 2021, and wish them the best of luck as they take on their post-secondary plans. As always, please refer to school website (www.southerncayuga.org/) for additional information and a warm welcome to Ms. Caitlin Wasielewski (Ms. Was) who will begin as our AP/AD on July 1.
In closing, I want to reiterate our gratitude for your continued support and wish you and your family all the best. Warmer weather and better times are here. Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and productive summer!
Take Care. Stay Safe. Go Chiefs!
